Having problems with your Compaq Presario R3000 Notebook ?

Compaq Presario R3000 shuts off by itself in about 20 minutes! I have to restart each time. Could someone please suggest a solution.


Answers :

It is most likely a bad thermal control chip (or connection to it) on the motherboard.
\015\012
\015\012Options:
\015\0121. Attempt to reflow the motherboard/replace thermal chips (or have a pro do it).
\015\012
\015\0122. Get a new motherboard ($80 to $100).
\015\012
\015\012Option 1 probably cost more than option 2 unless you have a local repair shop where you can just drop it off.
\015\012
\015\012Replacing the motherboard isn't very difficult...just time consuming.
\015\012Here is a link to the service manual:

\015\012
\015\012Or:
\015\012Set the unit on ice packs or an air conditioner vent...it'll probably run for weeks if you can keep it 'ultra cool'.
Uninstall the bios driver first and power it back on it might help
